Begin with the art that matches your interests and inclination, and see where it takes you. It may be the perfect fit. Many people try out and then learn two or more, as they inform each other and deepen practice.

“The Internal Arts have greatly amplified my sense of well-being on both the personal and professional level. I have a bouncier, more tangible sense of energy, and I stand, walk, run, turn, crouch, leap, and dance with greater natural ease and vitality… Mary gave us focused, methodical, skillful coaching infused with deep enthusiasm. We surely benefited from her depth of experience and infectious joy.” — Richard P. , businessman

“My typical response to distress is to contract physically and live in my head. Daily Tai Chi practice is a helpful and fun way to re-ground myself physically and psychologically.” — Bill M., management consultant

“In addition to knowing the details of Tai Chi, Mary is a wealth of knowledge and experience. She also teaches with zest and humor.” — Joel R., bodywork/massage therapist
